1 doctor agrees

In brief: Further evaluation

First, if there is no indication for antibiotics, they need to be stopped.
Cough could be several things, including asthma, reflux, etc. You may need to see someone else if you aren't getting anywhere. A pediatric pulmonologist may be a good way to go.
